Pentax auto 110 lens

Hi, I've seen an ad for this camera and some lenses going cheap, will the lenses work on my k200d?

The Auto 110 was the worlds smallest SLR. It used 110 cartridge film rather than 35mm. The lenses will not work with a Pentax DSLR, but there are converters for EVIL cameras.

If you ever hold one of these lenses you'll be amazed at how small it is- they literally have the diameter of a film canister.

Nowhere near big enough for the K-mount DSLRs.

DA Ltd. 70mm and 110 70mm. I believe the 70mm (49mm filter thread) is the largest among Pentax 110 lenses.

On a 110 camera, a 70mm lens provides the same FoV as a 135mm lens on a 35mm camera.

so it's basically a 2X ratio... close to the micro 4/3, no wonder it worked for those guys. the NEX people reported to have vinget problems at the corner (not surprise since that one has a 1.5X crop factor.
